I received Christ as my savior at the age of 8. In 1991, our local church started Word of Life for their students. Since then God used this ministry to deepen my walk with him thru the Word of God and the daily quiet time. God then started to move Nancy and I to become involved with ministry in a bigger way and we became missionaries with Word of Life in 1997. Our passion is to see students come to Christ, know his will, and reach their generation for Him.
Nancy received Christ as her personal Savior during a youth rally in her mid-teens. She realized that she needed a relationship, not religion bound by works. At the time she didn’t acknowledge the discipleship going on in her life or the need of it while attending a local church. Through Word of Life, first as a lay leader & now as a staff missionary, discipleship & seeing students grow in their Christian walk has become her passion.
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Phil. 1.6
